  • The Murph – named after Lt. Michael P. Murphy, a Navy SEAL who sacrificially gave his life – is designed to help us honor those men and women who have given their lives for our freedom that we enjoy every day.  As men, we need to model this kind of sacrificial love for those whom God has put around us.  The greatest example of sacrificial love is found in Jesus Christ.  Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends (John 15:13).
